Thoughts

While protests, petitions and phone calls are having an impact, I think it’s also important to read and learn how to be effective.  A couple of articles I read recently have given me food for thought.

This article, Washington’s Coup Fever Heats Up caused me to re-think my wish for a quick overthrow.  As David Talbot writes, “I agree that saving America means bringing down Trump. But it’s a revived democracy that must be his downfall — a newly invigorated media, judicial system and citizenry — not the dark maneuvers of spies and generals.”

Van Jones tweeted a link to this article: How to Culture Jam a Populist in Four Easy Steps which I though was very insightful as to the work we need to do to connect with people across America.

Actions You Can Take

The global letter to Donald Trump is now at >5 million signatures and continues to grow.  If you haven’t added your name, go here.

The Standing Rock Sioux are calling on members of the public to let the government know exactly how you feel about the Dakota Access Pipeline.

If you want to support Senator Warren’s request to audit President Trump’s finances for conflicts of interest, the woman who answered the phone at the Comptroller General of the Government Accountability Office said the most effective way to be sure my support counted was to email two administrators, Katherine Siggerud and Timothy Minnelli. Their email addresses are: siggerudk@gao.govminellit@gao.gov

There is a third email address through which they’re tracking people who are urging support for the audit. congrel@gao.govOr, you can send ONE email addressed to:(1) siggerudk@gao.gov (2) minnellit@gao.gov (3) congrel@gao.gov

Subject line:
Re: Audit for President Trump’s financial concerns
Dear Ms. Siggerud and Mr. Minnelli,
I’m writing in support of Senator Elizabeth Warren’s request for an audit of President Trump’s finances, to prohibit conflicts of interest that would prevent him from carrying out the responsibilities of the office without corrupt influence.
Sincerely,
